This repository contains datasets and R scripts that were used in a study of the population structure of Miscanthus sacchariflorus in its native range across East Asia. Notably, genotypes of 764 individuals at 34,605 SNPs, called from reduced-representation DNA sequencing using a non-reference bioinformatics pipeline, are provided. Two similar SNP datasets, used for identifying clonal duplicates and for determining the ancestry of ornamental and hybrid Miscanthus plants identified in previous studies respectively, are also provided. There is also a spreadsheet listing the provenance and ploidy of all individuals along with their plastid (chloroplast) haplotypes. Software output for Structure, Treemix, and DIYABC is also included. See README.txt for more information about individual files. Results of this study are described in a manuscript in revision in Annals of Botany by the same authors, "Population structure of Miscanthus sacchariflorus reveals two major polyploidization events, tetraploid-mediated unidirectional introgression from diploid Miscanthus sinensis, and diversity centered around the Yellow Sea."
